Description

Ocimum basilicum

A colourful basil variety that has red stems and large red flower heads. Its strong anise flavour makes it ideal for Thai cooking, while the bright red flowers are so attractive they make a stunning garnish sprinkled on salads and curries.

A short-lived annual that is sensitive to frost, basil does well in pots. It can be sown any time from late spring to summer in a tunnel, greenhouse, conservatory or on a sunny windowsill.

Highly recommended.
